Enjoy a spiritual trek to Gosainkunda Lake situated at the sheer altitude of 4,380 meters in Langtang National Park. Thousands of Hindu and Buddhists make a pilgrimage to the lake every year. Explore the source of the massive Trishuli River along the trail and visit a few of the over 100 freshwater lakes around Gosainkunda.

Gosainkunda is home to 108 alpine freshwater lakes. Most of these lakes remain frozen half of the year. Witness the folk legend of the Hindu Deity Shiva, who pierced his trident into the mountains to extract water, hence creating the lakes. The scenic Langtang Gosainkunda Trek advances through the pristine Langtang National Park.

The scenic trek begins upon your arrival in Kathmandu. Embark on a joyous road journey along the massive Trishuli River and Bhote Koshi to Syabrubensi. Syabrubensi in Rasuwa District lies 122km northwest to Kathmandu City. Trace the usual trail and begin climbing through the traditional Tamang villages en route to Langtang. Located at the base of Langtang Lirung (7227m), Langtang village remains home to less than 400 inhabitants. A half-day hike brings you to the Sherpa village of Kyangin Gompa. Explore the ancient Kyangin Monastery and climb the local peak of Tserko Ri (4984m). After enjoying the majestic views from atop, you’ll retrace your path and trek back to Lama Hotel. A detour leads you east towards Gosainkunda via Lauri Binayak and Thulo Syabru villages. Spend a day exploring the pristine Gosainkunda Lake and a few of the surrounding lakes. The festival of Janai Purnima in August sees the highest inflow of pilgrims in the lake. Be prepared to get overwhelmed by the overcrowded trail during August.
